404 on front page when I install demo data

    I have installed the theme, I've installed the demo as stated in the documentation, ensuring that the required plugins are installed and activated.  When I install the demo data with one click...  the front page shows a 404 error. 

    any ideas why this is not working with one click?

    I seemed to have been able to fix this, but i think you need to update your documentation as this was not a "one click" installation.  Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but after installing the demo (Appearance > Install Demo), I had to then set the front page and blog pages (not mentioned in the One Click Installation section of the documentation).  I did this by going to Appearance > Customize > Static Frontpage and set Frontpage dropdown to be Home and set Posts Page dropdown to be Blog.  If this is indeed the way to do this, then I would love to see a note added to the One Click Installation section that documents this required step.  I'm guessing that more experienced WP users would know to do that... but I would have expected the installer to set those pages for me.

    Hope this helps anyone else who ran across this.

    thanks for a great theme!
